How To Make Tutorial Videos
While videos often take the form of short films and corporate films, there are plenty of other uses for them as supporting content for other projects. How about tutorial videos? If you’re an expert in your field wanting to grow a YouTube channel, if you have created a piece of software or even if you found a cool way to do something and you want to share it with the world, you can use VideoStudio to make tutorial videos for other people to follow.
With VideoStudio, you can easily record your computer screen and make tutorial videos with voiceover, create custom content for your websites or add context to your presentation. VideoStudio’s screen recording software, Live Screen Capture, is exactly what you need to create your next tutorial.
1. Install VideoStudio
To install VideoStudio video editing software on your PC, download and run the installation file above. Continue following on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.
2. Open Live Screen Capture
Open VideoStudio’s screen recorder, Live Screen Capture and you can then set the parameters to capture what you are looking for.
3. Define the area to record
First, you need to define the area of your screen to record. You can select full screen (default at launch), a select window you have open, or a highlight to define a custom area of your screen and adjust the area manually by pulling on the edges of the frame.
4. Edit your video
Next, we expand the settings menu to define your file name and location, audio settings, mouse click animations and more. By default, the program captures both your microphone/voiceover sound + your system audio. You can enable or disable these, or connect an external microphone to record from. If you connect an external microphone, select ‘Sound Check’ to identify the device. In the settings menu, you can also identify the frame rate, file format, and enable or disable mouse click animations in your recording.
To begin recording your screen, press the red record button. All activities inside the specified capture area will be recorded. Screen capture starts after the countdown. You can press F10 to stop your recording or F11 to pause or resume the screen capture. Click the STOP button to finish your screen capture. The file is automatically saved to your defined folder destination.
6. Edit your video
After you are finished recording your video, you can import the file to the VideoStudio timeline to edit your video (optional). Trim video, add titles, background music and more. Cut video into segments and join them together with smooth transitions. Re-record voiceover.
7. Save and Share
When you’re done, it’s time to save your results. Go to the Share tab, and export your video. You can export it to popular file types, upload it directly to YouTube and more!
